A complaint has been filed against FBI Director James Comey with Department of Justice Office of Professional Responsibility that accuses him of interfering in a presidential election.
The Democratic Coalition Against Trump released a statement announcing their complaint:
The Democratic Coalition Against Trump filed a complaint with the Department of Justice Office of Professional Responsibility on Friday against FBI Director James Comey for interfering in the Presidential election, following the FBI’s decision to open up an investigation into Secretary Clinton’s emails this close to Election Day. Federal employees are forbidden from participating in political activities under the Hatch Act.
“It is absolutely absurd that FBI Director Comey would support Donald Trump like this with only 11 days to go before the election,” said Scott Dworkin, Senior Advisor to the Democratic Coalition Against Trump. “It is an obvious attack from a lifelong Republican who used to serve in the Bush White House, just to undermine her campaign. Comey needs to focus on stopping terrorists and protecting America, not investigating our soon to be President-Elect Hillary Clinton.”
Outrage is growing over Comey’s actions as details about the FBI investigation have revealed that it has nothing to do with Clinton, her emails, or her server.
Director Comey’s motives for sending the letter 11 days before a presidential election have been questioned by both Republicans and Democrats.
If Comey’s actions were politically motivated, he would be in violation of the Hatch Act.
What Republicans initially viewed as a new hope in the presidential election has quickly been exposed as a desperately political ploy.
The American people deserve a full explanation from Director Comey, because the letter that was released today raises more questions than answers.
